WORLD UFO CONFERENCE IN CHINA
I will be going to China during September to lecture at the Dalian World UFO conference. Apart from covering my research, my new book "Hair of the Alien" and the Australian UFO experience, my key interest will be examining the UFO experience in China. In earlier posts (see May 2005 archive) I described some of the material sent to me by the active Beijing based UFO researcher Zhang Jingping and the translation project I had undertaken here in Australia with Chinese interpreters which focused on the most famous alien abduction case in China, that of Meng Zhao Guo. Over 12 hours of videoed translation material has been compiled. My thanks in particular go to Michelle and Christine for their excellent assistance. This has given me a much greater understanding of this controversial Harbin area abduction milieu, which to date has been described outside China in a very limited way. As one of the key researchers in the case will be present at the Dalian conference I look forward to further discussions on this intriguing affair.
The Dalian organising committe has released the following communication on the conference:
China, home of the world's biggest UFO organisation, has sensed the western urge for the enormous Chinese UFO information. Voice for closer ties with Chinese experts has escalated to new height. To enhance global UFO research, organisations around the world has entrusted the International Chinese UFO Association to host the World UFO conference in the beautiful city of Dalian in northeast China.
An ice-breaking meet of ufologists between the east and the west, the Dalian World UFO conference includes renowned UFO authorities sharing their most updated UFO topics and cases around the world in full video lectures. At least 30 Chinese national & regional UFO organisations will present their specialised subjects, including close encounter cases happened in China, the latest and the classic, mostly first time ever announced internationally.
Dalian - named by the U.N. the "beautiful garden seaside city", home of the famous Ice Crafting Contest, will be hosting International Clothing Festival in September. We will have a full day tour of this reformed old city on 11/9. An unforgettable life long memory is waiting! Don't miss this rare occasion for information exchange and networking a global UFO community. Dalian welcomes you.
